What we've been doing
Nursery Wright's Trip to Smithills Farm
Tuesday 10th May 2022
We fed the goats, sheep and llamas.
We then went for a ride on a donkey.
We went on a very bumpy tractor ride to feed the donkeys.
Time to eat and play!
In the afternoon, we all went to the milking parlour and listened to Farmer Carl telling us all about how cows are milked. We watched as the cows were milked and were amazed at how much milk the cows produced.
Before we went home, we went to pets corner and had the opportunity to hold the chicks and bunnies. We then stroked the owls, alpacas, goats and a donkey. Finally we fed the lambs their milk.
We had a great day at the farm!
Easter Bunny visits Nursery!

Nursery have been learning about the story, Owl Babies'. On Thursday 20th January, the Owl Sanctuary came to visit Nursery. Paul told us that he helps to look after the poorly owls. He told us lots of facts about owls. He taught us that owls make different sounds. The female owls say ‘twit’ and the male owls say ‘twoo’. He told us that some owls fly silently, just like the owl mummy, who flew soft and silently to her owl babies. . He then showed us their wing span- it felt very windy when the owls flapped their wings! We then took it in turns to hold and stroke the little owl called Jenson.
Take a look at some of our fantastic work on 'Owl Babies'.
